Guacamole is a great dip to serve for your friends and guests when you're throwing a party but let's be honest, there's really only so many ways to spice up guacamole. For your next party instead of serving plain guacamole and chips change up the menu and serve some avocado tartare with toasted baguette chips for a more up scale approach or even avocado and lime deviled eggs? Both of these recipes are sure to make your guests smack their lips and never settle for regular guacamole again.
